Detective Pikachu receives free prequel ebook


Coinciding with the release of the Detective Pikachu Nintendo 3DS game, The Pokémon Company has launched a 25-page prequel ebook.

Set just before the events of the video game, “Detective Pikachu: Episode 0—Eevee’s Case” tells the story of Pikachu being recruited by Eevee to discover the scoundrel that has messed up the yard at Eevee’s home. Detective Pikachu explores Ryme City, interrogating Pokémon, and tracking down who is behind this heinous crime.

You can learn the truth behind this mystery yourself by downloading “Detective Pikachu: Episode 0—Eevee’s Case.” This eBook will be available at no charge on Apple iBooks Store and Amazon’s Kindle Store until May 15th.

The Detective Pikachu video game launched globally on March 23, 2018, after an early version was released in Japan back in 2016. The game is inspiring an upcoming live-action film due out in May 2019 starring Justice Smith and Ryan Renolds as the voice of the titular rodent. Gravity Falls’ Alex Hirsh helped write the film.
